Understanding Missouri's No-Fault Divorce Approach

Missouri is a no-fault divorce state, which means that a spouse does not have to prove fault in the other spouse in order to obtain a divorce. Instead, a judge will grant a divorce based on the fact that the marriage is irretrievably broken beyond repair.

Some might wonder if marital faults have any place in the divorce process. While it’s not necessary to prove fault to get a divorce, the court might consider the faults of a spouse when deciding on other matters such as alimony or property division. Some faults include adultery, the intentional squandering of marital assets, etc.)

Choosing the Right Advocate For a Smoother Divorce

Even an amicable divorce causes headaches for those involved. It’s difficult enough seeing your divorce affect those you love—particularly your children. Let us take away the unnecessary stress by completing the paperwork and guiding you step by step through the process.

Once we meet with you for an initial consultation and have a better idea of your needs, we’ll go to work immediately to help your divorce proceed as smoothly as possible. Our lawyers will assess all the possible scenarios so you know exactly what to expect along the way.

It’s our goal to make the process as peaceful as possible while accounting for unexpected complexities. Expect sound counsel and loyal advocacy during your separation period and beyond.

Don’t carry the weight of your divorce alone. Let an experienced attorney be your advocate. Also, if you have questions about alimony, child custody, mediation, or any other family law issue, please ask.
